I'm going to start off by saying that this is the first time that I've played a MGS game and I have to say that I'm impressed and dissapointed that I've been missing out on such a good series. The collection consists of MGS 2, 3, and Peace Walker.
The graphics look as they did in the respective years that the games were released; 2001, 2004, 2010 and they are terrible, bad, and ok respectively.
The games play out as a thrid person stealth shooter and aside from peace walker require the player to actually play steathly in order to survive. In Peace Walkter the shooting mechanics are updated allowing the player to go guns blazing should they desire.
The story in MGS is amazing and in order to understand what is happening I recommend playing 3, Peace Walker, and then 2.
The one gripe that I have with the series is that in MGS 2 the camera is fixed and while there is a radar it still completely destroyed the game for me and I was unable to continue halfway through.
This is a good rent for anyone interested in the story or stealth games ,but due to the fact that there is little replayability I can't really recommend buying it unless you simply like it that much.

This game is fantastic I love the metal gear solid series and you get five games in this collection Peace walker,metal gear solid 2,and 3 and 2 other classics. Although the controls will take some getting used to the game is wonderful.

If you loved the MGS series, but really don't have any ambition to go back through Sons of Liberty or Snake Eater, then I wouldn't waste your time. As it was okay for me, by in no way, shape, or form, will your experience be the same, but it was cool to see things in HD but the controls are clunky from the original. I enjoyed the trip down memory lane for about 20 mins and then that was it.
Rent first since you've got nothing to lose, but overall if you played through both games before, nothing new here other than HD.
